AULD ALLIANCE

Short & Strong

Back in the 13th century, Scotland and France created a historic pact named the Auld Alliance. Creating cooperation between the two nations, it remains today the oldest alliance in the world. In the world of whisky cocktail recipes, the Auld Alliance cocktail takes influence from ingredients originating from these two nations. Chivas 18 is our most complex blend, mixed with French cognac for a delicious short and strong drink.
